“Business schools play a very specific role in the academic world. In fact, they have a three-fold mission (i.e. pedagogical, scientific, and professional). This mission links them to three communities: the student community, the scientific community, and management practitioners.

professors equally targets students, research
scientists, and practitioners.

By taking into account the three-fold mission of
business schools, the schools’ professors thus create a variety of cognitive products (papers, books, case studies, and expert reports), which they disseminate to different target audiences (students, scientific community, and business professionals).” By crossing the business schools’ three-fold mission with the various cognitive products, the authors develop a range of 12 different products
